Read from the graph the "half-life" of "ORANGIUM" (the number of tosses it took for half of the total cubes to come up with an orange face.) [If the total # of cubes was 500, then how many tosses did it require for 250 of them to come up with an orange face? On the y-axis find 250; draw a line horizontal to the x-axis (the dotted line) starting at 250 and stopping when it reaches the curve. Now starting at this point on the curve, draw a line parallel to the y-axis (dotted line) until it crosses the x-axis. Read how many tosses it says it took to have 250 cubes come up with an orange face. Does this match
